Concerned over rising crimes, DIG orders intensive patrolling
Seemingly rattled by the recent attempted loot at ATM on Saharanpur Road and the recovery of a body of an engineer at Clock Tower in the heart of the city, DIG Garhwal range Pushpak Jyoti has directed the range police officers to intensify patrolling during the night hours in their jurisdictional limits. Sounding concerned over spiralling cyber crimes in the plain districts, DIG said, “Traditional crime pattern seeing a change in the State, cyber crimes are on the rise in the plain districts. Besides, the banks and their ATMs are vulnerable”.
The range police officers must have the security of banks, ATMs and other financial institutions adequately strengthened. Police station officers must meet the bank officials and impress upon them the need to bolster security in view of attempts made to rob ATMs. Besides, they must see to it that the security guards working in the banks or to be recruited must be subjected to thorough verification. The security guards should be trained at the police lines from time to time,” he added.
A meeting of the bank officials with local police station officers should be held twice a month to strengthen security, he said, adding that the banks should conduct mock drills to detect the chinks in the security system and to plug the loopholes. He also laid stress on all the banks and their ATMs being endowed with CCTV cameras under section 51 (1)(a) of Uttarakhand Police Act 2007. This aside, auto alarm system, auto dialling telephone and biometric system should be put into place in the banks, Jyoti said.
He also instructed the circle officers and police station officers to conduct random checking of banks and ATMs.
Moreover, DIG asked the zonal checking officers to conduct checking at 12 am, 2 am, 4 am and 6 am at various places like Vikasnagar, Dehradun city, Mussoorie, Rishikesh, Doiwala, Roorkee, Laksar, Kotdwar, Srinagar, Tehri, Kuniki reti and Dhalwala within the range jurisdiction.
